Gearbox penalty for Bianchi


Jules Bianchi will start Sunday’s Monaco GP from the back of the grid after being hit with a gearbox penalty.

The Marussia man is one of two drivers to carry a penalty through into Sunday’s 78-lap Monaco Grand Prix.

Marcus Ericsson was penalised after qualifying for crashing into Williams’ Felipe Massa.

As the Caterham driver had qualified P22, the stewards ruled that he would start the race from the pit lane.

Bianchi will start from P21 after incurring an automatic five-place penalty when his gearbox was changed.
